Laser Hair Removal has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used to permanently remove any unwanted hair from your face and body. The procedure has become a popular alternative from techniques such as shaving or waxing for permanent hair reduction. The laser targets the hair follicle to leave you with less hair between treatment sessions and eventually, completely hair free. When you decide to go ahead with a laser hair removal treatment, it is important that the person performing this medical procedure is a plastic surgeon, a board certified dermatologist or a nurse to ensure it is carried out safely and effectively.
During your initial consultation with one of our registered practitioners at Solea Lounge, you will be advised on whether your hair type qualifies for you as a good candidate and whether your skin type will permit the treatment. We will also advise the number of sessions required for permanent hair removal of the treatment area, as well as the overall cost. It is important as though you treat this procedure as you would any cosmetic surgery carried out by plastic surgeons by following the correct aftercare advice to achieve your desired results.
Before we begin with approaching your face or body with the laser, we will apply topical numbing cream to the treatment area to reduce any discomfort and act as a cooling agent against the laser light. The procedure can cause slight discomfort to the treated area but is less painful than other hair removal treatments such as waxing. Many of our patients have described it as a slight sensation that resembles a rubber band snapping against your skin during the session. We advise that you return to the clinic every 4 to 6 weeks for multiple sessions, with additional top ups to target any fine or light hair that may grow.
On the day of your laser hair removal procedure, your skin should be free of lotions, makeup and deodorant; however, sunscreen should be used before and after the procedure. If you have recently had sun exposure with visible tan lines or tanning, we recommend rescheduling your appointment until the tanning has subsided. To ensure the effectiveness of the treatment, we recommend shaving the treated areas before and between sessions as waxing and plucking should be avoided.
As mentioned, the laser hair removal treatment is a cosmetic procedure that can be carried out on most areas of the body where there is facial and body hair. Most patients carry out treatments in areas including the upper lip, chin, neck, underarms, bikini line, arms, lower legs and back to prevent future hair growth. A suitable candidate for a laser treatment are those with thick, coarse and dark hair as it is the laser is most attracted to the pigment found in hair follicles. The more pigment in your hair, the more effective the procedure will be with removal of dark hairs. Patients with light hair will not have as much success with removing body hair through this treatment. We recommend that those with darker skin types avoid laser treatments as the laser light targets pigment of the hair follicles and surrounding skin which could cause pigmentation issues against a dark skin tone.
It is reported that women spend thousands of dollars annually on hair removal procedures such as waxing or shaving. The laser hair removal procedure is slowly becoming the preferred hair removal method for many as it can help to save money as in the long run. The overall cost of laser hair treatment will depend on the amount of treatments required for your desired results and the face or body area you will have treated.
Small areas of the body include the ears, areola, eyebrows, chin, sideburns, neck, hands, feet, belly button and the basic bikini line. To target small areas of hair removal, the procedure costs anywhere between $50 to $200 per session. To target hair in the medium areas of the body including some areas of the face, jawline, shoulders, lower and upper arms, upper and lower legs and underarms, the cost of laser hair removal can be anywhere from $150 to $400 per session. For larger areas of body hair such as the full face, chest, abdomen, buttocks, Brazilian or full arms and full legs, there is an average cost from $200 to $1500 per session.
